You do realize that IBM will _NOT_ contribute any code to Apache
OpenOffice don't be.

I have to wonder where the incubation proposal imagines coders will be
coming from.  Granted, you have 100 odd "contributors" listed.  How many
of them have contributed a single line of code to OOo, LibO, or any of
the other 500 plus clones/variants/forks out there?

 If IBM, for example, has a proprietary value add they should not be
able to block somebody else from contributing substantially similar

_IF_.  What do you mean _IF_?  You know dam well that IBM will do just
that. If you can't see that happening on general@incubator, then you
need to start reading that list, paying attention to what IBM is saying
that they will do.
